Home Buyer's Inspections
Buying a new home can be an exciting and yet overwhelming event. On one hand, you're looking for all the features you need in a home and when you find the right one, everything in you is telling you to jump on it before someone else does. You spend maybe half an hour, or an hour at most, looking over the home and decide- this is the one. You make your offer and much to your delight, it is accepted.
A contract is produced and both parties sign it and you're on your way to owning a new home. Then, you start to worry; what if the roof has leaks? What if the plumbing has issues? What if the air conditioner or heater is in poor condition? What other hidden items are lurking behind the walls and in the attic and under the home?
The anxiety sets in, and you start second guessing if this was a good choice. You didn't test the water fixtures, or drains, or vents, or receptacles, did you? You didn't check the water quality of the well, did you? You didn't climb in the attic to investigate for leaks, did you? The answer is no, of course not! You didn't have that kind of time to investigate and operate all those systems to make sure everything works effectively and safely.
This is why you need a licensed, trained home inspector to come in and operate those systems, climb in the attic and crawlspaces, and evaluate the performance and safety of your potential investment. Even if you did notice some things, often it is easy to overlook problems, or understand the severity of issues when your heart is leading your brain when you find the perfect home.
A home inspector will bring a professional, unbiased opinion as to the performance of the systems and components that make up your new home and provide you with a written report that you can review and determine what, if anything, you need to negotiate or prepare yourself to handle once the purchase is complete.
